Palm trees can be a beautiful symbol of our idyllic climate here in South East Queensland, but they can also present some problems. There are many different species, and some drop quite a bit of debris. This can be a hazard if they’re tall enough, or they can end up upsetting neighbours if they hang over the wrong side of the fence.

It might be easy to imagine whipping out the chainsaw, or having a friend come around to chop it down for you, but there are a few things to consider before attempting to do it yourself.

Should I chop a palm tree down myself?

There are some circumstances where your palm tree may be more important than you realise, such as in sloping gardens where tree roots provide support for foundations. In these cases, there might be better ways to handle issues with your palm tree, like professional maintenance.

But even if there doesn’t seem to be an issue with cutting it down, the process can be riskier than it seems, and the tree will need to be removed afterwards. All in all, it may end up costing you more time and money than you’d think.

You may also have to consider the regulations of your local council, so it’s always best to seek advice from experts who know the legislations, especially if you do not own your property. Luckily, Brisbane Tree and Yard Specialists will sort everything out for you, right down to arranging council approval.
